enable irda?
Authored by: boboeltoto on Nov 22, '01 06:00:46AM

thanx for the tip Bhines but unfortunatly changing "ignore" to something else is not enough to have the port working on a first gen. Tibook.
After the change I do see the IRDA port as an option in the network control panel but I can't get my cellphone's modem to be reconized.

Yesterday, Macnn posted an article about a "Hidden" bug known by Apple that prevent first generation Tibook to have IRDA port working....Apple is supposed to be working on a fix....Anyway that sucks...

Reader: service issue with 500MHz TiPB

A MacNN reader writes about an issue with early revisions of the PowerBook G4: "We're a service provider and Apple seems to have a hidden issue with the IrDA(infrared) port in the first rev of PB G4s under OS 10.1.1, it won't work. It only seems to work in the new 550s and 667MHz. They are aware of this issue and they're working on it, but they don't know when it'll be fixed. There's no articles regarding this issue either."
